A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?

Yeah, it never ends well.

Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.

Especially since we’re opposites.

But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.

Until one night in a limo when we combust.

One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.

Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.

But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

No matter the cost.

3.5 Stars

Okay, so here’s the thing—and I’ve said this before, so bear with me—I’m one of those strange creatures that prefer plot to sex in books. As in, if there’s an engaging plot, I don’t need the sex scenes at all. However, if there’s sex in the book I’m reading, I expect some balance with the story, especially in one as long as this one. It’s all about finding a balance, otherwise, I’ll end up skimming through most of the sex scenes no matter how hot, or how well written, they are.

I liked Stone and Jackson, and I liked them together. It’s undeniable they were super hot as a couple, but they also felt younger than they were. I’d go as far as to say they came across as immature in some scenes. Which, let’s face it, comes with the territory of being a rockstar and getting everything he wants. Honestly, I think the plot, or lack thereof, didn’t do him or Jackson any favors.

Despite this, the book was enjoyable for the most part, perhaps not exactly what I was expecting, with it being my first Lauren Blakely book, but still entertaining enough to keep my interest until the end (even if I did skim through a lot of the sex scenes). This could very well be just me. You could read it, and find that you love it. So I would suggest giving it a try, and seeing how you feel about it.
